    Smile Hoosier Hang 2013

    Hi there, and welcome from the Knobs of Indiana. I'm a new goer here, very young compared to most of the aged wise folk of the forums; but am quite interested in joining in on a Hoosier hang

    So here would be a good place to start planning an outing for..
    - either late-winter through mid-spring would be a good start.
    - any mid state campsites/hikes good? two lakes loop seems to be a great area as an option..
    -anything else you all would like to add!

    Hello from Greenfield Indiana! I'm looking forward to some group hangs. Definitely want to try that two lakes hike sometime. Been testing my gear out hanging in my backyard, so I'll be ready.

    Welcome from Greenville, IN...just up 150 from you.

    As a relative noob, I am looking forward to a Hoosier Hang myself...I hope my weekend schedule lets me do it!

    I also plan on checking out Two Lakes Loop when the weather improves...and some sections on the KT. Still scouting for more trails though.

    Hey all. My wife and I are planning on showing up tax weekend. Fri - Sunday. I have taken the time off already. Working on a new tarp, due to the cat destroying my last creation, and working on a 2nd backpack that is different than the g4. Look forward to seeing any and all who show up. As always, the weather dictates if the "hill" is an option.
    I like big hammocks - I cannot like.
